REVENGE BEING KEPT UP TO HIS WORK AND RUNS AGAIN AT REDCAR
Revenge, in the main, has been a model of consistency this season and with one win to his name has actually earned a lot of credit in defeat on three of his last four starts. He has had a 2lb rise in the handicap this week, but this should not prevent another good run at Redcar, where he has run so well before, on Saturday 23rd June race time 5.15 and hopefully David Allan will be available to take the ride. The blinkers will be dispensed with and cheek-pieces will be worn for the first time and Tim Easterby assures us he will have a dress rehearsal in these on the home gallops before Saturday.
SCARLET DRAGON OUR ONLY REPRESENTATIVE AT ROYAL ASCOT
Scarlet Dragon contested the Wolferton Stakes on the first day of Royal Ascot for the second year running, but this time ran way below form. He has had two exceptional runs this year in the Dovecote Hurdle and also at Newbury in a very good Group 3 and Alan King has decided to give him a proper holiday. He should then be fresh and well for a run on the flat before resuming his novice hurdling career.
ON TO VICTORY SET TO RUN IN NORTHUMBERLAND PLATE
On To Victory, who was a model of consistency last year, showed he has gone the right way with his close second in the Further Flight Stakes at Nottingham, but ran below form for one reason or another in the Yorkshire Cup. He is due to contest the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle on Saturday June 30th. He is unproven at distances in excess of 1m 6f, but will get in the line up for this prestigious race and we will see where we will go from there.
FIRST MOHICAN – THE CURTAIN COMES DOWN
First Mohican has been a fantastic horse on our team for the last 9 years. He started his career with Henry Cecil and his 7 wins and just short of £160,000 in total prize money has been well documented. He has taken his owners on a fabulous journey and there will be a retirement page for him on this website in due course. His best achievement was arguably when he did not win, but was runner-up in the 2016 Cesarewitch, when he came from last only to be thwarted by what turned out to be an extremely well handicapped winner trained by Hughie Morrison. First Mohican will be missed, but has a wonderful retirement home in East Sussex and his owners will continue to keep an eye on him.
